At that wine dinner in New York, we met Diego Tomasi, the director of the consortium that represents more than 3,000 growers and producers in the DOCG. He spent most of his career as an academic, becoming an expert on the region, and was named director in 2021. We discussed with him how to get consumers to pay more for the DOCG when they are accustomed to lower-priced Prosecco. We followed up with some email questions.
- "Treviso represents the heart of the appellation, the regional area of Prosecco. And you can find a different kind of soil, because you are very close to the mountains." Stefano Gava of Villa Sandi explains Prosecco
- Great Prosecco needs room to roam. Pour it in a standard wine glass in order to fully enjoy its power and finesse.
- Indigenous Selections Prosecco Brut 2013 has a new descriptor to add to its label: an explosion of flavor — literally.
